Prior to departure on one of our camping trips with the Mowanjum kids, Fred by the camp fire.Libby was clearing out the fridge and came across one last lonely turnip. We joked about it only to find that one wag (David) had carved a whimsical face on said turnip. From that time on “Fred” turned up in the most unlikely
places and even managed to hitch a ride to our campsite. The kids loved him and delighted in thinking up odd places for him to appear. He became a feature of the trip and gave both kids and leaders a great many laughs as he got into all sorts of mischief around camp. By the end of a hot week in the bush he was looking pretty old and wrinkly!
